He believes traffic congestion can hurt the state and that more can be done.

“If you want to take a strong economy and figure out things you can do to restrict that economic growth and hot have such a rosy picture, one really good way to do that is tie everyone up in congestion,” said Hickenlooper.

He believes it should be a bipartisan effort to make sure Colorado has the infrastructure to accommodate future growth.
